Bring your camera as there definitely is some hands-on time, especially if you are unsure or don't know how to some of the controls and settings on your own camera

Great class! I have been to classes by other companies, this by far is the best! The teacher kept the class interesting and gave practical examples and explain them clearly that non-professional photographer like me can understand and use them I am already planning for the next class I want to take

Great instructor--very interactive! My only trouble was that my camera is a hybrid so the first 1/2 of the class (about aperture and shutter speed) did not apply to my camera--but still good if wanting to learn more--2nd half was more relevant.

Stephen Oachs and his team are phenomenal. Take any class and you will be amazed at how much you'll learn. No questions are too small. They really help you understand how to take great photos.

This was an awesome class. However, it's the discounted price that allowed me to afford it. I will surely attend any more discounted classes they have and next time persuade a friend!
